Ste Industries in collaboration with Donaldson has developed an air filter sensor that connects directly to a truck’s telematics system to provide readings according to life expectancy of the engine air intake filtration system.
A new air filter sensor is the first of many applications that Donaldson is planning to introduce for industrial vehicles for optimizing fleet maintenance management.
The hardware simply plugs into existing telematics by means of an add-on receiver requiring no additional engineering inputs, enabling a simple plug and play retrofit solution.
The air filter sensor is powered by a Micro.sp® transmitter and a small lithium battery–a compact design that enables the system to sample and transmit air restriction data real-time with a long life expectancy. This breakthrough design allows disrupting performance at a fraction of the cost of conventional technology.
Micro.sp® RF technology has proven to be a perfect match for Donaldson innovative offerings whilst improving:
Ste Industries proposes an ad hoc solution to fulfill existing and future market needs where large fleets, as well as OEMs, could benefit from a simple and effective integration with existing onboard telematics.
The Filter Minder connected technology wireless sensor makes use of existing telematics infrastructures.
Installation is easy — simply screw the sensor into the air cleaner indicator port and connect the receiver into the telematics device — it only takes a few minutes.
Visualize filtration analytics using the existing fleet management tools.
Minimize cost of ownership
